Le Gateau Bakeshop at The Grand Wedding Showcase!

Every 'slice' of an event is important, but none is as awaited as the sweet part! Dessert is a sweet course that concludes a meal (and sometimes the soirée). Different cultures infuse unique symbolism to their desserts, afters or sweets. CountDown Events believes in always ending on a high... and this is why we are thrilled to have Le Gateau Bakeshop at our Crème de la Crème Grand Wedding Showcase this year!

In the middle ages - sugar was incredible expensive and usually only the wealthy could indulge on special occasions. As desserts have evolved over time, there are new techniques & ingredients with which to design. From natural candies & nuts to Macarons & ganache confections - dessert has adopted a new meaning.

Design. Art. Creativity. Exclusivity. Inimitability.

If you are looking to leave a lasting impression on your guests - Le Gateau Bakeshop is the perfect fit. Specializing in custom cake design, the Bakeshop is ready to translate your emotion into a delicious reality!

Follow Tanya Muller, owner and pastry chef at Le Gateau Bakeshop on twitter for yummy photos & inspirations! We will be seeing you on November 3th at the Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver!

Yaletown Wedding Gallery ~ Photography

The Yaletown Wedding Gallery strongly believes in four fundamentals. Simplicity, Elegance, Energy & confidence. Built on the shoulders of an innovative team - there is one common goal; to encapsulate the spirit & joy of the love & commitment between two people - through photography.

Since this group of talented photographers think of themselves as "fashion photojournalist" the bride and groom quickly forget the cameras in the room and all barriers disappear. Sandra - head photographer & owner of Yaletown Wedding Gallery describes their work as being a form of reaching out & grasping a fragile moment in time... moments that may have been lost or forgotten forever.

Here are some images from this team of brilliant artists that will let you dip your imagination into their world of capturing "true essence & spirit"!

We are utterly pleased to have the Yaletown Wedding Gallery at this year's Crème de la Crème Grand Wedding Showcase! Be sure to visit this wonderful group of photographer on Sunday November 3, 2013 at the lavish Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver!
